The title will give you hint about what I am going to write. I have been searching the web for long to make my modem usable under Linux. Based on reading on similar cases, I try to 'installing' the driver to use the modem as follows:

Having connected the cable to USB port, at Konsole and typing
I got:
[  246.397140] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
[  246.549808] usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[  246.693177] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial
[  246.693323] usbserial: USB Serial support registered for generic
[  246.693417] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic
[  246.693421] usbserial: USB Serial Driver core
[  246.695616] usbserial: USB Serial support registered for GSM modem (1-port)
[  246.695647] option 1-2:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
[  246.695920] usb 1-2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
[  246.695934] option 1-2:1.1: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
[  246.696018] usb 1-2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1
[  246.696032] usbcore: registered new interface driver option
[  246.696035] option: USB Driver for GSM modems: v0.7.2
the CDMA modem is known as ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1. I try ttyUSB0 first. at Konsole type:

ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem
to create symbolic link to /dev/modem.

Then I open KPPP and click Configure...

-> Accounts -> New -> Manual Setup.

In Connection name I enter Smart. in Phone Number I add #777. then OK.

-> Modems -> New.

In Device -> Modem Name I enter Smart
in Modem -> Modem Commands at initialization string 2 I add
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
select OK -> OK -> OK.

at KPPP dialog box,
in Connect to, I enter Smart
in Use Modem, I enter Smart
in Login ID, I enter Smart
in Password, I enter Smart

click Connect and you will have your modem displaying AT commands (or will not) and finally display CONNECT along with status.

Open any web browser and start surfing the net.
